No. 11 Editorials. npHE athletic resolutions were refused by Amherst and Williams, as many expected, but the}-^ have served a good purpose and the desired end, that we might play the scheduled games with Williams with medical students on the nine, has been accomplished. The Amherst students have not passed any resolution cor- responding to the one sent us from Williams, and it was only "out of courtesy" that they deigned to consider the Dartmouth resolu- tions long enough to reject them. We doubt not that they were a little surprised to see Williams throw off their guiding hand and make concessions with us in the matter. We are glad to see that the men in the Berkshire College refuse to be chucked under the chin by Amherst any longer, and have adopted a slightly changed policy, not outlined for them, as sojnany appear to have been recently, by the other college in the league. It looks as though Amherst would not form the desired league with Williams at present and leave Dartmouth out in the cold, if we may judge by the action of the Williams men. Time is a great factor in bringing about a right settle- ment of the pending questions, and we wel- come the postponement of the time for making a final decision. 'T^HE mutilation of books and periodicals in, and even their theft from, the college library by those enjoying its great privileges has become a matter for serious considera- tion. That all may know the condition of things at present, we will state that from the reference room three volumes of the Forum, one or two of the New England Magazine, four or five of Harpers and a few of Outing, have been taken. The rest of the college can no longer refer to them. If the publishers chance to have the volumes for sale, the col- lege, with scarcely enough money to buy all the new^ books necessary, is put to the ex- pense of replacing the stolen ones ; many volumes out of print cannot be purchased except at a great price, so the set goes incom- plete unless the missing numbers chance to be returned. Four or five of the current num- bers of the magazines in the reading room are now missing, and this is not an uncommon occurrence. Pictures and reading matter are constantly cut from the periodicals on file, whether they cost two or seventy-five cents. This is bad enough, especially when the mu- tilated numbers are not discovered until after they have been bound, but to cut illustrations, paragraphs and even pages from valuable books in the reference and stack rooms, is the height of meanness. To mention another in- stance : books intended for the use of from ten to sixty or more men are often taken from the reference tables by individuals, an act which not only greatly inconveniences others, but may mean the lowering of an examina- tion mark, where the reading of the missing book would have prevented it. Everyone admits that this should not be so, but the above facts show that there are some who do not live up to their beliefs. Dartmouth stu- 195 THE DARTMOUTH dents need to bear in mind that they receive more privileges in this library than are given anywhere else. Do Dartmouth men abuse these privileges? It would seem so. Must every book and periodical be put under lock and key because a few have no idea of other's rights? We hope not, but this would seem to be the only alternative if these acts we have referred to continue. The way these depredations can and must be stopped, that our freedom in Wilson Hall maybecontinued, is for each student to see that nothing of the kind is done by him or within his sight or knowledge without taking proper means to correct it. Any man caught in the act should be instantly expelled. We sincerely hope such a measure will never have to be taken, and w^e still trust, even though we have been led to doubt, that the spirit of justice in Dart- mouth men will make all right. A MATTER which demands attention is the way in which attempts are made to cover the required ground in studies by some instructors. During two-thirds of the term short lessons are given, but as the closing weeks appear a large amount of the subject- matter is found to be untouched. In order to cover this work, lessons inordinately long are assigned, and the result is that at best the rest of the text book is merely scanned, and some of the main principles and facts that require close study are neglected. The book has been read, page by page, from cover to cover, but the very rapidit}' with which it has been read, prevents any great idea or fundamental principle from being firmly fixed in the student's mind. More planning before the course begins is called for to remedy this. 'T^IIE new scholarship system which is to Ijc inaugurated the coming year will be pr(j- ductive of a higher standard of work, and thereby furnish incentives to the student to do more faithful and efficient work. By rights the granting of scholarships shf^uld be based on the standing of the student. To the best should go the largest scholarships; to the poorest, the lowest. It is simply rewarding a man according to his work. To give the student who maintains the highest and the student who receives thelowest rank is unfair. In such a case industry and honest toil are given no encouragement, and no more atten- tion is paid to them than to idleness. Excel- lence in study and regularity in attending recitations deserve especial notice, and in the new scholarship system this end is attained. The student who depends on a scholarship for his continuance in college will devote him- self to his work with much more zeal and ardor because he realizes that a high standing brings due recompense in a financial way for every expended effort. TT should be a rule that all who receive an average recitation mark of 85 per cent shall be exempt from examinations. If such a rule were in force more honest determined effort in study would be made than there is under the present system. There would be fewer failures in recitation, and all would feel an incentive to attain the required 85 per cent which would free them from the tedium and trouble of an examination. Many who are now contented with 50 per cent as a recita- tion mark would be spurred on to better work, and to more interest in that work. Further, the number of commencement appointments would be increased, we believe, and the gen- eral standard of scholarship raised. Let this rule be adopted, and cribbing and cramming for examinations will be vague remembrances of the past. n^HE Press Club should not be allowed to sink into oblivion when it can be made so useful. The officers who were elected a short time ago ought to show signs of life. Their great and immediate duty is to plan and execute the work which necessarily falls to their lot. Two years ago the club thrived and was productive of much good. Last year it passed into innocuous desuetude THE DARTMOUTH 197 where it has since remained, and now is the time for the restoration of its former influ- ence. Wherever Dartmouth alumni, wherever present students are found, wherever those who are to come in the future may reside, the newspapers that reach such communities should have a correspondent who would write regularly about the college and about its affairs. Booming the college through the newspapers is on the whole unpi ohtable, but steady correspondence that will keep up the interest in us of those concerned is as advisa- ble as it is necessary. The first aim is to maintain the interest without flagging, and this aim is gained only by regularity in writ- ing. Correspondents who, for a month or mure, fill the columns of their local paper with paragraphs on Hanover scenery only to drop the work as suddenly as they took it up, are not the kind who secure the best results. To procure the best correspondents for the most reliable newspapers is its duty and mis- sion, and an effort with this end in view should be made without delay. New Hamp- shire is not without bright journalists who would gladly give hints to Dartmouth under- graduates intending to make newspaper work their profession. Let the club secure closer connection between the college and the New England and national press, and, further, let it secure experienced journalists to give practical talks on their work. Let the club do these things, and then its usefulness will be enhanced, and it will become the important factor it should in our college life. * n^HE increasing interest our alumni are taking in the college has again been shown by the warm welcome they have given Pres. Tucker on his tour, and by their public and private expressions which show their loyalty, and their perfect satisfaction with the present administration and its plans for the future. Statements and erroneous ones too, we believe, like those recently made at a graduates' banquet of one of our sister colleges by the alumni and faculty of that institution, to the effect that athletics and social life, among other things, lowered the high intellectual standard the college once had, and that the college was going to the bad generally — such pessimistic statements are never heard at Dartmouth gatherings nowadays. Our graduates have the right idea of existing things as well as the right spirit and we share the same with them. We gladly accept the greetings brought from them by our president and send our heartiest in return. TTTE are paying good money for the poorest quality of electric light ever imposed on a community since the incandescent lamp was invented. Sensible students have long since given up wearing out their visionaries by attempting to study by their eight candle- power glow and now use them as ornaments, vainly hoping that some day the company will surprise them with a real sixteen candle power light. The old smoky gaslights would be preferable to the present electrics which in every way are as inconstant as the college clock. That the managers of the company are observing is shown by the fact that they have so quickly caught on to the methods of the Hanover extortioners who charge full price for what is not its equivalent. The company should either give us what we pay for or sell out to those who can do it. We have been cheated and bothered long enough. The I/istener. The common expression that it takes all sorts of men to make a world is nowhere more exemplified than in the assemblage com- prising the student body of an American col- lege. It is made up of men from the city and men from the country. No one state or sec- tion can claim an exclusive monopoly of the members of a prominent institution. There- fore it naturally follows that, aside from sec- tional peculiarities, each college community will contain several representative types of men. It may be of interest to examine a few 198 THE DARTMOUTH of these types. The first on our Hst is famil- iarly known as "The Plugger." A superficial observer mi^ht imagine it the end of a colle- giate training to develop this type. But, whether the average college man fails to grasp the great purpose of his course, or for whatever reason, the fact remains that this type comprises the vast minority of students. However, heis to befound. Onecan generally find him in his room engaged in continual study, or in the recitation room, where he never fails to appear. As a bookworm he is successful; as a man in the broadest sense of the word, a failure. His classmates admire him for his talents and industry, but they do not pattern after his mode of life. Of the proper method of developing the social side of his being, or of the inspiration arising from the contact of man with man he is altogether ignorant. He has missed the best side of his college life. * Of exactly opposite characteristics is the man who has entered college without any definite purpose of making a proper use of his time. He attends recitations when he feels so disposed, but his work shows lack of preparation. The time he devotes to study is chiefly spent in devising methods to escape work. He is usually a brilliant man, but the careless manner in which he squanders his time causes him to waste four years of his life without an adequate result. • From the foregoing t3'pe it is easy to pass to the next — that of the professional "bum." Fortunately for himself the man of this type belongs to a class not easily separated from the others. Usually he has entered college with a purpose to make the most of himself, but chance has thrown him among compan- ions who lead him astray. His actions form the theme of conversation both in and out of the college community. From him many people form their judgment of the benefit of a college education. Although but few of this class are U) be found, the influence of the en- tire student body is barely sufficient to coun- teract their decided evil influence. • College men of all classes are familiar with the next type — the perennial visitor. Heis not the man who "drops in" for a few mo- ments, has some purpose in his visit, states it briefly and then, whenhiserrand is completed, takes his departure. We are all glad to wel- come such a visitor, but when one of the itin- erant class puts in appearance and wearies us with his monotonous flow of empty para- phrases of other men's opinions, we regret that we left our latchstring hanging out to tempt him to enter. Perchance he is the man who possesses but one subject upon which he can intelligently converse, and, worse than all others, that subject may be himself We foresee the ordeal through which we must pass and with the utmost patience prepare to endure it. We recognize this type as one of the necessities of our college course. He sup- plies the missing link in the chain of human nature. There is another type of man about whom the Listener believes a misconception is cher- ished. He is generally called the "all-round" man. Strictly speaking, no such individual exists. There are some men who attain a pre-eminence in some one line, and also a me- diocrity in several others, but their reputation rests upon the former, and because in this they are successful we give them credit for more skill than they really possess. A man of less talent, imagining that the road to success lies in applying himself to many different kinds of work, uselessly fritters away his ef- forts, and at the end of his course can point to no meritorious achievement. The truly successful college man is not the "all-round" man. Another type of the college man causes us more trouble than any other. We all know him. We sec him sprinting for the chapel at the fifteenth stroke of the bell. He comes to recitations five minutes after the period has THE DARTMOUTH 199 begun. He has kept us waiting when an im- portant engagement was pending even if he did not fail lis altogether. Perhaps it is to make amends for these deficiencies that he is in such haste to leave the church and chapel services, and employs the interval of the clos- ing hymn and the benediction to don his over- coat and rubbers. ••• But one type remains to be described and this includes the great majority of the stu- dents of any college. It is the man who goes quietly about his business and who is always in his place when needed. He holds a posi- tion well to the front in his class. When he undertakes a task he always accomplishes it. He realizes that he is in college for a purpose, and he determines to make his course count for all it is worth. He makes no boasts, his name may appear but seldom in the college periodicals, but his class-mates realize his worth, and, although unheralded his pros- pects for future success are very bright. He is the type of the true American college stu- dent. :^x-Gov. B. F. Prescott. Benjamin Franklin Prescott, '56, ex-gov- ernor of New Hampshire and trustee of Dart- mouth College, died at his home in Epping Thursday morning, February 21, aged 61 years, 11 months and 25 days. He was born in Epping, where he spent his first fifteen years on the farm and attending the district school. He fitted for Dartmouth at Blanchard Academy in Pembroke and at Phillips Exeter, and graduated from here with honors in 1856. After this he entered the law oflSce of H. A. and A. H. Bellows at Concord, and was admitted to the Merrimac bar in 1859. In '61 he became editor of the Inde- pendent Democrat, which position he held until 1866. He was a strong supporter of President Lincoln and his policy. He was special agent of the treasury under Lincoln and for a time under Grant, and was New Hampshire's secretary of state in '72, '73, '75 and '76, became republican governor in '77, and was re-elected the next year. He was non-partisan in his management of affairs and before he left the governor's chair saw the state laws revised, the new prison con- structed and the militia organized. In 1880 he was chairman of the New Hamp- shire delegation to the republican convention at Cincinnati. He served six years on the state railroad commission, receiving his ap- pointment in 1887. In 1878 he became a trustee ex-officio and by vote of the alumni has since served. He has also been a trustee of the N. H. C. M. A., and two 3'ears ago became president of the board. He was a member of the Royal Historical Society of London and vice-presi- dent of the N, H. Historical Society and pres- ident of the Bennington Monument Associa- tion. It was largely through his efforts that the portrait galleries at the New Hampshire state house, in the rooms of the Historical Society and at Phillips Exeter Academy and here in Dartmouth were filled with some excellent portraits. He was married in 1869 to Miss Mary L. Noyes, and his wife and a son, now fitting for Dartmouth in Phillips Exeter, survive him. His funeral was held in Concord. In his service to the state, the slightest difference between official and unofficial inter- est could not be detected. Office to him was an incident to patriotism, not patriotism an incident to office. He was an excellent repre- sentative of the idea of earnest, arduous and solicitous citizenship. He had a w^ide range of interest and was quite as much absorbed in educational as in political affairs. He was a product of New Hampshire and always had a deep and steady love for it. His essential right-mindedness was noticeable and his mental instincts were sure and true. The time of his youth, that in which the anti- slavery conflict raged, was a period of high moral impression and had much to do in determining the moral set of his life. His most conspicuous personal quality was posi- 200 THE DARTMOUTH tive and unswerving loyalty, without irritat- ing unreasonableness to his friends, to his party and to his principles. He was a great collector of portraits and memorials, and it was an intelligent service of enthusiasm and love. He made himself familiar with much of the best in the history and biography of the state and of the countr}^ and living in this historic world the present became a world of men, not of things. He had a great capacity for friendship, a great quality of friendliness and the instinct of helpfulness. He was a man born to the uses and rewards of friend- ships. He was of the people and for the peo- ple, simple in habit, honest in purpose, kindly in spirit; a man to be trusted among men. In his death the state will mourn the loss of one of her worthiest and most devoted sons. The Resolutions. ACTION T.\KEN BY AMHERST AND WILLIAMS. At a meeting of the Amherst students the resolutions adopted by Dartmouth were rejected, and the position taken by the Amherst delegates at the recent base ball convention was approved. A meeting of the Dartmouth students was held in Old Chapel, March 6. The following document from Williams was read : "At a mass meeting of the students of Wil- liams College held Monday evening, February 25, 1895, it was unanimously voted to reject the Dartmouth resolutions. At a subsequent meeting held Wednesday evening, February 27, to definitely define Wil- liams' position in regard to the playing of Dartmouth medical students in base ball championship games, the following resolution was unanimously voted : That the president of the American Col- legiate Base Ball Association be asked to immediately call a special meeting of the association. That Williams shall send delegates to that meeting instructed to vote to allow Dart- mouth medical students to play, except those who have enrolled since the close of the base ball season of 1894, and those who have not pursued since the beginning of the college year a course requiring twelve hours of recitations or lectures weekly. This rule will apply only to the base ball season of 1895. Furthermore, that next year Williams will vote to debar medical students from partici- pation in championship games of base ball." It is understood that a meeting of the dele- gates representing the three colleges will be held March 9 at Greenfield. The delegates for Dartmouth are Manager Brown and Captain Abbott.

The Dartmouth alumni of Concord and vicinity tendered President and Mrs. Tucker a reception in the parlors of the Phoenix hotel. Concord, Monday evening, February 18. The event was the most brilliant in the history of the association. Mrs. Dana, Mrs. Wm. M. Chase, Mrs. F. S. Streeter and Mrs. G. P. Conn assisted in receiving. D. C. Richard- son, '91, and H. B. Metcalf, '93, presented the guests. Later in the evening President Tucker spoke to the alumni. The officers of the ensuing year were chosen before the reception, as follows: President, Dr. Claudius B. Webster, '36; vice-president, Hon. William M, Chase, '58; secretary, George H. Moses, '90; treasurer, Louis C. Merrill, '74; executive committee, L. J. Rundlett, '81, Dr. George Cook, '69, Edward N. Pearson, '81, with the president and secretary. INTERCOLLEGIATE ASSOCIATION MEETING. The annual meeting of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association occurred at the Fifth Avenue hotel in New York February 23. These colleges were represented: Yale, Harvard, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Col- lege of the City of New York, Cornell, Syra- cuse, Swarthmore, Brown, Fordham, George- town, Stevens' Institute, Wesleyan, Trinity, Lafayette, Columbia, Rutgers, State Uni- versity of Iowa, University of California, Syracuse University and Dartmouth. The last four institutions were admitted to the league. Bugbee, '95, and Chase, '96, were the Dartmouth delegates. The officers elected were: President, J. M. Kendrick, U. of P.; vice-president, F. M, Goddard of Trinity; secretary, R. Van Arsdale. The winners of the first and second places in the intercolleg- iate events will represent American colleges in an internationaj athletic contest in Eng- land the coming season. A proposition was received from the Amateur Athletic Union to form an alliance. The different colleges will vote upon the- proposition by mail. Dart- mouth's chances for sending a contestant to England are good,- and we hope that every student will take interest in this new field for our athletes. Freshman Banquet. The banquet of the class of '98 was held at the Quincy House, Boston, on February 21, from 7 to 11 p. m. About forty-five were present and did ample justice to the excellent menu. Shortly after 9 o'clock Toastmaster J. R. Chandler began the post-prandial exer. cises by introducing the president, R. F. Marden, who was followed by A. D. Wilson on "This is the event of the term." "The col- lege," by E. W. Snow, and "The ladies," by W. T. Sumner were the next toasts. All then arose and sang some verses, prepared for the occasion, to the tune of "Sweet Marie." "The class," by F. V. Bennis, "Our Victims," by A. J. Abbott, "Athletics," by J. B. C. Eckstorm, and "Incidents of November 21, 1894," by A. Smith, were the remaining toasts, followed by many informal ones. This was the first banquet ever held in Boston by an under- graduate class of Dartmouth, but probably it will not be the last. Sophomore Class Supper. The Sophomores held their class supper at the Manchester House, Manchester, February 21. David J. Maloney was toastmaster, and the toasts were as follows: Address, Frank B. 204 THE DARTMOUTH Goodenow ; Dartmouth of Today, Harry H. Blunt; Reminiscences, Frank M. Coakley ; Our New Professors, Joseph O. Simpson ; The Ones We Love, Raymond E. Maben; Super- iors in Name, Edward K. Woodworth; Our Prospects, Benjamin F. Adams ; Rho Kappa Tau, Theron H. Huckins ; Ninety-seven, Harry A, Gibson; Poem, E. G. Carr; informal toast, Walter E. McCornack ; class song. About forty, men w^ere present and everything went off smoothly in spite of the attempt alleged to have been made by the Freshmen to make the proprietor postpone arrangements "on account of the death of a prominent athlete in the class." In many respects the supper and speeches surpassed the same of a year ago. Fifth Annual Indoor Meet. The fifth annual indoor meet of the Dart- mouth Athletic Associatif)n was held in the gvmnasium Saturday afternoon, March 2. The Freshman class won the most points, 38, with the Sophomores second with 23. The Juniors were credited with 21 points, and the Seniors with 22 points, J. E. R.

No Dartmouth student of the period be- tween 1870 and 1879 could write of Greek at Dartmouth without grateful recollection of Professor John Carroll Proctor, as represent- ing the best type of the old-time classical instruction. A mastery of the minutiae of the language, an ardent love for the Greek litera- ture, delicate literary tast*?, and humor as keen as it was quiet, gave to his instruction both life and strength. The sound grammat- ical drill of Freshman year was a strong dis- cipline in itself and a thorough foundation for later study. His later courses, especially those in Sophocles and. Demosthenes, were removed as far as possible from dry technical routine, while no one who heard his brilliant translation of Aristophanes' Clouds will ever forget the two-fold revelation of the brilliancy of the Attic comedy, and the fun and wit of the quiet professor of Greek. During the later _years of Professor Proc- tor's service a new movement was setting in under the influence of the rapid development of natural science and the increased study of the modern languages. Charles Francis Adams' attack on the "College P'etich," at the Harvard commencement of 1883, was the expression of a wide-spread feeling that the time and effort spent upon the classics in school and college was altogether out of proportif)n to the results; it was claimed that the ordinary student could read neither Latin THE DARTMOUTH 205 c nor Greek at graduation and that his-college study had been perfunctory and superficial. In the course of the vigorous debates which followed in the press, while some of the charges were shown to be exaggerated, teach- ers of Greek were forced to admit, to them- selves at least, that there was altogether too much ground for the attack ; very few col- lege students could read Greek with any facility' ; the result was either the vexatious thumbing of the lexicon for every clause of every sentence, or the profitless and unschol- arly resort to the "horse;" in either case only a mere fragment could be read in any term. The student who had read a couple of dramas must be content to take the rest of his knowledge of Greek tragedy and comedy from the reports of other people. The read- ing of a few fragments of Herodotus' story of the Persian Wars, supplemented by a melan- choly month with the "Funeral Oration," was the only knowledge of the sources of Greek history which a student could obtain; a single dialogue of Plato must stand for all of Greek philosophy. In many cases there was also the tendency to exalt grammatical study as an end rather than a means, and in general the results of Greek study were for most men vague and incomplete. The attack on Greek succeeded, not in driv- ing Greek from the college curriculum, but in reforming both the methods and the aims of Greek teaching. It vvas seen at once that the power to read Greek rapidly and accurately must be em- phasized from the first ; fitting schools began to give sharp attention to the acquisition of vocabulary iind to sight-reading; rapid translation was cultivated as an art. The colleges offered the "alternative" method for entrance examination, by which the student's fitness was determined, not by pages already read, but actual power of reading. College courses began to broaden on the side of literature; more matter was read in any giveo term ; more attention was given to the literary criticism of the Greek authors. But the battle for Greek received unexpected allies. At the very time when the attack was gathering, Schliemann was calling the My- kenaean warriors from their tombs to fight their own battles ; at the same time the Ger- mans were publishing the results of their excavations at Olympia, throwing open a new world of Greek art. The art and archi- tecture of Greece came forward as a new and a most important feature of classical study, while the foundation of the American school at Athens in 1882 brought our colleges into close touch with the new movement. A third influence operating at the same time in many of our colleges was the coming into their faculties of young men fresh from the German universities; they brought two elements to our Greek instruction ; first, the idea of original research by the student as an essential part of the advanced work of the college, and second, the acute critical spirit in literature and history. A fourth influence, at Dartmouth at least, was the sub-division of the lower classes ac- cording to scholarship, and the introduction of electives into the upper classes. Under the old system of alphabetical sub-division, the dullards and the idle had set the pace for the able and the ambitious ; the recitation hour was devoted as much to finding out what men were incompetent or unprepared as to helping and stimulating those who were able and studious. Under the new system, the sub-division by scholarship brought into one division the men who were prepared for rapid and accurate work, into another, those v^ho either could not or would not do work of the highest character. The introduction of electives enabled the student to continue Greek throughout his course, and that in the closest possible con- tact with his instructor. Naturally, elective divisions are made up for the most part oi »ien who excel in the given department, and men who work from a love of the subject. The stimulus that has come through this 206 THE DARTMOUTH means can hardly be realized by those who were trained in the old way. Now from all of these sources has arisen the Greek teaching of today in all of our colleges ; its essential peculiarities are along the lines mentioned; constant attention to sight-read- ing, with and without translation into Eng- lish, a great increase in the amount of Greek read in anj- year, a broader study of Greek literature, sharper literary and historical criticism, the vivyfying of the whole by the study of Greek art, emphasis upon original investigation in the later stages of the course, sub-division of classes in required work ac- cording to scholarship of students, closer con- tact between pupil and instructor through small elective divisions, and the continuation of Greek throughout the course by advanced electives. These changes have amounted to little less than a revolution. They were alread\' beginning under Professor Proctor; after his death they were carried out by two men who entered heartily into the new move- ment and who are among, its strongest rep- resentatives, Professor John H. Wright and Professor Rufus B. Richardson. To maintain and develop these principles is the aim of the department toda3^ The de- partment carries on two courses, quite dis- tinct in their aims and methods. The first is the required Greek course of the first four terms, closing at the end of the Sophomore fall ; here the needs of two sets of men must be met ; the one set will use this course as the foundation for the advanced electives, the other men will depend upon this course for their entire knowledge of the Greek language and literature. Homer, Herodotus, Plato and Sophocles are the authors read. In connection with the reading the history of Greece is followed to the end cjf the fifth century B. C, the beginnings of Greek history, in connection with Homer, the fecundation and early development of the Athenian democracy, in connection with Herodotus, and the Age of Perikles, in connection with the work of Socrates and the growth of the Greek drama. The course, while necessarily limited, has thus a perfect unity and gives a consistent view of Greek life and literature at its best. But the old-time grammatical drill is by no means omitted in this preliminary course; it is essential as a means to fit men for the higher courses, and invaluable as a discipline for those whose course ends with Sophomore fall ; this grammatical study is re-inforced by Greek prose composition during Freshman winter and spring. Especial attention is given to rapid sight-reading, and in Homer and Herodotus the first division of the class is examined on sight passages at the close of the term. The second course of the Greek department begins with Sophomore winter and continues as an elective course to the end of Senior year. In successive terms the following departments of literature are studied in a critical way: Greek Oratory, Epic Poetry, The Drama, History and Philosophy. In each of these courses the author read serves as a center around which to gather the history of the development of that department of literature; a large amount is read in the Greek; this is often supplemented by extensive reading in standard translations, the results being brought into the class-room in theses by the student; the whole matter is then unified by lectures and discussion by the instructor. In some of the courses each student follows out some minute topic during the term by way of original research, and presents his results in a thesis at the end of the term. Some of the topics so investigated the past year are as follows: The Structure of the Period in Demosthenes, The Simile and Metaphof as used in the Oration on the Crown, Demos- thenes' fundamental political and ethical principles as inferred from the Oration on the Crown, evidence as to the guilt of Alcibiades before the Sicilian expedition, Greek forms for "Yes" and "No" in the dialogues of Plato, Plato's debt to Parmenides, In addition to the courses in literature a THE DARTMOUTH 207 course is given in Linguistics, which serves as an introduction to comparative philology, and a course in Greek Archaeology. The college has a very extensivecollection of photographs for the latter work, and the librar\' facilities have been sfreatlv increased in the same direction in later years. A post-graduate course this year includes the critical study of the Homeric Ques- tion, practice in weighing and combining manuscript readings in Demosthenes, the study of technical details in Greek rhetoric and an introduction to Greek epigraphy. The success of these courses must always be conditioned upon thorough preparation at entrance. With only four terms of required Greek, the student has no time to fit for col- lege after he comes here. He ought to bring a good vocabulary, sound knowledge of forms and syntax, and real skill in the art of translation ; the new methods demand such preparation more emphatically than did the old. Such preparation assured, the course offers the possibility of appreciating the Greek literature, and the ability to read Greek with pleasure at the close of the course. Chas. D. Adams.

He was born in Cambridge- port, Oct. 4, 1819, and received his early ed- ucation in the public schools. When a boy he left school and entered the counting room of Samuel Austin of Boston, with a view to a commercial life. Three vears after he aban- doned commercial life and fitted for college un- der the care of Rev. David Peabody, the hus- band of his eldest sister, and afterwards pro- fessor of belles lettres and rhetoric in Dart- mouth college. Two years after graduation he received the degree of LL. B. as a graduate of the Dane law school in Cambridge, and in 1883 the degree of LL. D. from his alma ma- ter. In 1853 Mr. Brigham was appointed by Gov. Clifford attorney of the southern district of Massachusetts and in 1856, when the of- fice of district attorney was made elective, he was chosen attorney by the people of the dis- trict and held the office until 1859, when he was appointed by Gov. Nathaniel P. Banks to a seat on the bench of the superior court, then first established. Although Justice Brig- ham was associated with remarkably able ju- rists on that first superior bench, which in- cluded such men as Marcus Morton, Otis P. Lord, Seth Ames, Julius Rockwell and John P. Putnam, he was considered the peer of all. In 1869 Justice Brigham was appointed chief justice by Gov. William Claflin and with the exception of Lemuel Shaw, he held the posi- tion longer than any man in the history of the judiciar}' of Massachusetts. Aug. 31, 1890, Justice Brigham, owing to failing health, was obliged to resign his position, to the deep regret of the bench, bar and people. Justice Brigham was not only an ideal man mentally, but physically as well. He married Oct. 20, 1847, Eliza Endicott, daughter of Thomas Swain of New Bedford, who survives him. He also leaves four sons. '43 — Rev. J. E. B. Jewett and wife have charge of the school in Evarts, Kentucky, which is supported by the American Congre- gational missionary association. '45-S. H.
